US Victory in Hills

Around Khesan

In one of the fiercest battles of the war, U.S. Marines defeat North Vietnamese troops on the hills, near the air strip at Khe Sanh. The U.S. troops benefit from massive air support. During the battle, 160 U.S. servicemen are killed and 764 men wounded - half the effective fighting force. The Communists lose over 940 men as the US forces capture their position.
